South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in put on his tourist clothes yesterday and roaming around with thousands of other tourists at Angkor Wat in Siem Reap. The ruins attract millions of visitors each year, making the ruins in Siem Reap province Cambodia’s most popular tourist destination.

The world heritage site contains the remains of different capitals of the Khmer Empire, dating from the 9th to the 15th centuries.

Moon walked around the site for two hours at the site, posing for photos with officials and pausing to enjoy a coconut juice.

He is the first South Korean president to make a state visit to Cambodia in 10 years.

South Korea is one of Cambodia’s biggest investors and source of tourists and the President’s presence also delighted South Korean travellers, who clapped and shook his hand.

The appearance caps a three-day trip during which Moon met with Cambodian leader Hun Sen in the capital Phnom Penh on Friday.
